Use a qualifier on those statements or else be deemed guilty of using logical fallacies. Logically, you are not to demonize a group based on the actions of individuals within that group. If that holds for the OWS, then you can be sure that holds for conservatives.
A qualifier, "from what I've observed, the tone of their political speech seems to indicate..."
So, why come to a political discussion forum?I think that post is very telling.Conservatives don't want to talk about it, they don't want to hear about it, they don't want to be confronted by anything that might challenge their world view. Psychologically, the far-right must be dealing with a lot of fear and insecurity, the way they cling their belief system like a favorite blanket. It almost as if the beliefs give them a sense of self--"I'm with this group, we believe", a sense of belonging to something and finding purpose.
What is the point about debating opinion? I'll never change yours, just as you'll never change mine. Deal with the facts. The facts are that the states currently have the right to make the decision for themselves. The constitutional question is not set to either side. I think that there have been two posts in this thread that make that fairly clear. Arguing opinion is pointless. Although, I certainly get why liberal would want to do that. Facts are not often on their side so they like to appeal to emotion - such as this gay mother and putting her 8 year old child up to this stunt.
It's a fact. Organized religion can be extremely intolerant... Despite teaching and praising the opposite.
As long as you use qualifiers, you remain valid. Yes, there are some sects of organized religion, such as the WBC and radicalized Muslims that are extremely intolerant. I fear the meanings you and I place on "intolerance" may be different, though. If I view homosexuality as a sin, and voice my opinion on this website or any other medium of communication, that does not make me intolerant. I tolerate them, and cause them no harm. Intolerance would be killing/harming them. One you have a firm understanding of the word "intolerance," your view corrects itself, and we don't need to have these discussions.
